Financial Aid information nights and workshops

Posted On: 09/03/19

KCC is hosting financial aid information nights and workshops to assist college-bound students and their parents in understanding the financial aid process.

All sessions are hands-on and designed to help with filling out the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid), the form used at all two- and four-year colleges and universities to determine eligibility for federal and state grants, work-study programs, subsidized & unsubsidized student loans and some scholarships. 
KCC Financial Aid staff will be available to provide assistance in completing the FAFSA.

Sessions after Nov. 1 will also have information on applying for KCC scholarships. See information below for locations. The schedule is … 

  • Tuesday, Oct. 1 – 6-8 p.m.: Info Night & FAFSA Workshop – KCC Room M120
  • Thursday, Oct. 17 – 6-8 p.m.: Info Night & FAFSA Workshop – KCC Room M120
  • Tuesday, Nov. 5 – 6-8 p.m.: Info Night, FAFSA & Scholarship Workshop – KCC Room M120
  • Wednesday, Nov. 13 – 6-8 p.m.: Info Night, FAFSA & Scholarship Workshop – Miner South Extension Center, 1488 E. Walnut St., Watseka
  • Thursday, Dec. 5 – 6-8 p.m.: Info Night, FAFSA & Scholarship Workshop – KCC Room M120

“It is important to complete a FAFSA as soon as possible after it becomes available Oct. 1,” said Michelle Hasik, KCC director of financial aid. “It does not matter if you have chosen a college or university, or even if the student will attend college. Completing the FAFSA early provides a safety net so when plans are finalized it is not too late to receive grants, student loans and scholarships.”
